DNA Fingerprints

Re: DNA Fingerprints

The Advantage -
· DNA fingerprinting is that it's unique
· DNA fingerprinting is that it will identify individuals and tell you whose fingerprint it is

The Disadvantage -
· For identical twins you have identical DNA and fingerprint
· Is slow

Re: DNA Fingerprints

Hi
DNA fingerprinting is a way to identify a specific individual, rather than identifying a species or a particular feature. Also known as genetic fingerprinting or DNA. As a technology that has existed since at least 1985, when it was announced by its inventor, Sir Alec Jeffreys. DNA fingerprinting is currently used both for identification of parenthood and the identification of offenders or victims. There is a discussion of the use of DNA fingerprinting as a kind of personal identification, despite the feasibility of this is debatable.
The vast majority of DNA from a human to exactly match that of any other human being, so to distinguish between two quite difficult. DNA fingerprinting uses a specific type of DNA sequence, known as a microsatellite, to make identification easier. Microsatellites are short pieces of DNA that are repeated many times in the DNA of a given person. In any given area, microsatellites tend to be highly variable, making it ideal for taking DNA fingerprints. By comparing a series of microsatellites in a given area, you can identify a person with relative ease.
Thanks..................

Re: DNA Fingerprints

DNA fingerprinting is a test to identify and evaluate the genetic information-called DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)-in a person's cells. It is called a "fingerprint" because it is very unlikely that any 2 people would have exactly the same DNA information, in the same way that it is very unlikely that any 2 people would have exactly the same physical fingerprint. The test is used to determine whether a family relationship exists between two people, to identify organisms causing a disease, and to solve crimes.
